AR work instructions in the Aerospace sector

In Augmented Reality News

July 27, 2022 – taqtilea provider of Augmented Reality (AR)-based work instruction solutions for deskless workers, recently announced that it Hangar 51 aviation accelerator program.

The Hangar 51 accelerator program is run by: International Airlines Group (IAG), one of the world’s largest airline groups with 533 aircraft flying to 279 destinations and carrying approximately 118 million passengers annually (pre-COVID). The airlines in Spain, the UK and Ireland include Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, Veiling and LEVEL.

The Hangar 51 accelerator is an industrial initiative designed to rapidly test new technologies and evaluate their potential to transform the aviation industry. As part of the accelerator program, Taqtile demonstrated to IAG members how its ‘Manifest’ AR work instruction platform can benefit airline maintenance and repair operations.

“Every year, IAG’s leaders select exciting, cutting-edge technologies to test during the Hangar 51 accelerator program. Our group has now welcomed more than 75 promising, innovative teams to collaborate on initiatives aimed at transforming aviation. We are delighted to have partnered with Taqtile on a pilot with British Airways for Program 6,” said Dupsy Abiola, Head of Global Innovation, IAG.

With Manifest and a head-mounted display or iPad, airline maintenance personnel can intuitively access digital manuals and guidance, equipment-specific maintenance and repair procedures, animated 3D assembly and disassembly models, step-by-step videos, detailed holograms and more. to improve the efficiency of maintenance and repair. When cases arise where more detailed instructions are required, live remote assistance from the airline’s operations center or even equipment OEMs is also available through the platform.

“This unique accelerator program was a great way to introduce airlines to advanced technologies such as Manifest, which can immediately improve the performance of technicians and engineers,” said Dirck Schou, CEO of Taqtile. “Through demonstrations of our AR work instruction platform throughout the 10-week program, aviation industry leaders have gained a better understanding of the tangible benefits Manifest can deliver.”

Maintenance knowledge experts can easily and quickly create custom, step-by-step digital work instructions that are superimposed on aviation equipment. Experienced authors can also provide support materials to aid in the repair or maintenance process, such as additional photos, videos, PDFs, or manuals and documents, delivered in a hands-free heads-up display if required. All of this educational content is accessible to frontline personnel at the equipment location, resulting in faster training and improved execution of critical procedures, according to Taqtile.
